Dodgers sign four international prospects
LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers' new ownership group continued its push into the international market with the signing of four players on Monday.

The team signed Cuban outfielder Yasiel Puig earlier in the week and drafted Cuban left-hander Onelki Garcia in the third round of last month's First-Year Player Draft. On Monday, the Dodgers signed four 16-year-old players: pitchers Lenix Osuna, Victor Gonzalez and William Soto and catcher Julian Leon.

"We're pleased to announce we have been extremely active in the July 2 signing period and have signed multiple players with more on the horizon," scouting director Logan White said. "We are able to get three fine young arms with bright futures."

Osuna is the son of former Dodgers pitcher Antonio Osuna, who went 24-21 with a 3.28 ERA over six seasons as a reliever. Osuna, Gonzalez and Leon are all from Mexico, while Soto is from Venezuela.
